I Notice a Nest and Green Room

Two new poems in Turtle Island Quarterly (14.4 Spring/Summer 2018). You'll have to scroll--mine are on the bottom of the chapter. "I Notice a Nest" came straight out of my woods walk. "Green Room" was inspired on a vacation in Hawaii when I woke early and noticed surfers in the dark getting ready for sunset. Enjoy!

Finally made it into Star*Line!

My debut in the Science Fiction Poetry Association's magazine Star*Line is in the Winter 2018 issue (41.1) with two poems: "Green Men Don't Talk" (loosely based on Green Man mythology and the legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight) and "Shovel" (a nice dark poem about a shovel come to life . . .that wants to kill!).

This poem is titled after a procedure I had: MRI. I expected it to be hard psychologically since I'm claustrophobic, but I didn't realize how hard it was physically. An MRI is a really loud procedure that makes you feel like you're being run through a buzz saw. Songs of Eretz is an online magazine run by a doctor. Photos illustrate each poem.

Diabolus Ex Machina

Here's a theater poem in Issue 6 of Modern Poetry Quarterly Review. We hear about the literary device of Deus Ex Machina a lot, so I thought, hey, shouldn't there also be a Diabolus Ex Machina?

My first poem in Strange Horizons! "Godmotherless" is a speculation about what you do in a fairy tale without a fairy godmother character. There's also a podcast of it. And if you still don't get it, read the Quick Sips review.
